Robust person safety system

07 June 2021

PEOPLE WORKING in and around machinery in industrial, engineering and maintenance sectors can be protected and better managed using an innovative real-time location system from Salunda, says the firm.

The firm says: “The patent protected Crew Hawk delivers the latest in advanced location capability, integrating multiple technologies into a reliable, robust zone management system that improves the location of both people and mobile and autonomous machinery, providing position performance to avert incidents and cut the risk of workplace injuries and accidents.”

Crew Hawk is suitable for industrial health and safety applications where people could be at risk from contamination (e.g. toxic materials), intense heat, high pressure (e.g. hydraulic oil), high voltage, heavy plant such as cranes and forklift trucks, blind lifts, high noise levels and crush injuries.

Crew Hawk connects wearable locators attached to PPE and compact mag-mounted equipment sensors to a reliable and secure network, to automatically trigger personalised warnings and pause equipment to prevent a collision if someone is too close. 

The individual is alerted to the risk of danger by an alarm on the wearable device, with the system also preventing the equipment from moving until the individual has left the area and returned to a secure location. 

The user interface is said to allow swift set-up to create a portable safety system that can be rapidly deployed across different industrial zones and will warn people before they enter a restricted or red zone, reducing the occurrence of costly lost time incidents or production downtime. ‘Flight recorder’ playback features permit incident investigation, while analytical tools pinpoint accident blackspots.

Crew Hawk can be deployed in an explosive atmosphere - and is ATEX and IECEx certified.

The incorporation of digital ranging cameras (i.e. time of flight or Lidar) provides additional levels of safety. It can also be integrated with machine vision to discriminate between ‘authorised’ and ‘unauthorised’ personnel.
